talk with msnbc contributor e.j. dionne about that. you're watching "the ed show" on msnbc. >>> thanks for staying with us on "the ed show." i find this an interesting political story. three women are using three key issues to basically stun republicans and pull ahead in their senate races. the republicans expected all of these women to lose. instead, they are out campaigning their opponents and boosting support for president obama. let's start with democrat tammie baldwin and the medicare debate. baldwin is three points ahead of tommy thompson in wisconsin. here's the main reason. thompson was caught on camera promising to do away with medicare and medicare. thompson has tried to clarify the comments. it's not working. the latest ad shows her taking care of her late grandparents. she promises to leave medicare alone. so baldwin is proving to be a tougher candidate than the republicans bargaining for in the badger state. but there's another surprise for the gop. elizabeth warren is ahead of scott brown in massachusetts. warren uses the 47% comment to go after brown on tax f

outright lies. >> it would be funny if it wasn't so true. next up, e.j. dionne on the moral hole of mitt romney's lies and his budget. >>> another big-time ceo gets caught advising his employees to vote romney or else. that story ahead. >>> in a new study out of ohio, shows america just how racist the state's anti-early voting effort really was. you won't believe these numbers. state senator nina turner joins me live in studio. >> if your hair is on fire, you need to act like your hair is on fire. but with advair, i'm breathing better. so now i can be in the scene. advair is clinically proven to help significantly improve lung function. unlike most copd medications, advair contains both an anti-inflammatory and a long-acting bronchodilator working together to help improve your lung function all day. advair won't replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms and should not be used more than twice a day. people with copd taking advair may have a higher chance of pneumonia. advair may increase your risk of osteoporosis and some eye problems. tell your doctor if you have a heart cond

contributor e.j. dionne, author of the book "our divided political heart." e.j., what do you make of this? is this just one of the days on the campaign trail that screwed up? what do you make of it? >> we should honor the saint vincent society. my late dad was active in the society. if e he wanted to do a serious effort to lift up their work and say we need this kind of work in the country, more power to him. but if you're going to have a photo op, do it right. don't cause them trunl. i don't think that's the most important part of the story. there's a real metaphor here. when you look at the ryan budget, the photo op points you to the ryan budget. and the budget 62% of the cuts are in programs for low-income people. now faith-based organizations are fantastic, they do great work. but the people who run them will tell you they cannot pick up all of the slack that there would be if the government had cuts of that kind. you had simone campbell on who pointed out that there's a study by bread for the world showing if you took the food stamp cuts, every church would have to come up with $50,000.
